Yeah, I can't wait to see what people start coming up wth when the cheaper model gets into more people's hands. Too bad it is so delicate though, I think that will end up being a hinderence to many.

" For them, the fun is creating these complex physical behaviors."

I agree with you completely. The great fun is in creating the complex motion of a spider to make it to look natural. It is the technology behind this "toy" that would thrill the Spiderbot fans. Good to see some of the features that T8X would have the capability to talk to each other and there is a serial port available to modify & make custom programs. That would make things more interesting....if some one wishes to spend money in buying couple or more of these. It is a costly toy, but the pre order offer makes it attractive.
